IETHBRIDGE TTrTTTTYTTTTTTTIITI ASA SINGER, Carrol O'Connor is noted mainly Tor his lusty rendition (with Edith of the theme song of Ws weekly series All In The Family (CBC-TV, Fridays at but in a TV ver- sion o[ the 1930s Broadway mu- sical, Of Thee I Sing, he turns his vocal talents to the tunes ar.d words of George Gershwin ar.d his brother, Ira. In the 00-mkiute color special Of Thee I Sing, lor telecast on CBC-TV, Monday, Oct. 9. at p.m., on Channel 7 O'Con- mr stars in the lead role of John P. Wintergreen, the pres- idential candidate who runs on the "love" platform. Opposite O'Connor, in the role of Mary Turner, Wintergreen's secreta'y-sweetheart, is Cloris Leachman, an Academy Award-winner who also sings. As O'Connor points out, Of Thee I Sing is a musical satire, and "that makes it a rarity. Satire lias never done terribly well in America, but 'Of Thee I Sing1 is an exception. It takes a very funny look at the kind of (presidential) campaign In which excitement is substituted for ideas, hoopla instead of is- sues. George S. Kaufman, who wrote the play with Morric Ryskind, once said that satire is what closes on Saturdav night, but he proved himsel' wrong with 'Of Thee I Sing.' f was the longest-running show for which Gershwin ever wrote music." It also captured, in 1931, the first Pulitzer Prizi .-cr awarded a Broadway rmi sical. Included in the TV version arc the lilt Gershwin from the oritun.il slagc pro j duc'.ion Of Thee I Sing. Love Is Sweeping the Country, Mine Who Cares? and Wintergreer for I In featured roles in the DO minute TV version, Michelle Lcc plays a Southern belle, Di ana Dcvcrcaux, and Jack Gi: ford is ThrottlclXkUom, the con fused vice-presidential candi date. The plotline centres arount the presidential campaign o John P. Wintcrgreen, who is swept to power on a platfoi with one plank LOVE. Win- tcrgrcen's campaign managers promote the "love issue" by commuting him to marry tl winner of an Atlantic City beauty contest., who turns oul to be the luscious Devereaux, a Southern belle. But Winter- green discovers his latent love for his secretary, Mary Turner, and despite the protestations of (lie Deweaux contingent, mar- ries Mary on Inauguration Day. Firmly ensconced in the White House, Wintergreen faces campaign to impeach him for "breach of promise." TV version of the 1930s musical hit is faithful to the original style of the production, its only concession to the pres- ent being in the introductory sequence.
